Abstract

Using a double wedge sample, the effect of Co loose spins, introduced by J. Slonczewski, on the interlayer coupling in Co/Cu(100)/Co was studied. The predicted biquadratic coupling was not observed. However, a gradual increase of the maximum bilinear antiferromagnetic coupling strength with increasing loose spins layer thickness was found. This can be understood within the loose spins model, but also by assuming that the loose spins layer behaves like a ferromagnetic layer.
